Safe to say, Malaysians are pretty much addicts when it comes to using our mobile phones. Whisper the words “digital detox” to the average person and you’ll most likely be greeted with horrified looks and aggressive shaking of heads.
Thanks to our massive appetite for mobile usage, it is a huge market for telecommunication (telco) operators in Malaysia.
There hasn’t been a more competitive industry in Malaysia apart from the constant rivalry between fast food joints here. With major telcos unveiling the “best” mobile plans every other week, consumers are certainly spoiled for choice.
Ask anyone around you the phone line that they’re using and you’ll basically notice two different groups of people – one group that is loyal to one and only one telco, and another that doesn’t mind jumping from one to another every other month to get the best bank for their buck.
Often times, many of us aren't aware of what we're actually paying for every month when it comes to mobile data plan subscription (unless you're one of those who checks every single receipt and bill and calculates every single cent you spent).
And to be frank, the customer service behind these major telcos don't always give you an honest answer when you start questioning your monthly charges.
So with the plethora of mobile internet plans offered, which one is the best for us?
